Best L'Arc~en~Ciel Songs

The Top Ten
1 Driver's High

It was the intro to GTO, which is my favorite manga/anime.

This should be first, dudes and dudettes. This song raises your spirits!

I don't know this one from anime, but the song is brilliant in itself. Great, funky, and for sure my number one.

2 Honey

The first song that made me impressed with L'Arc~en~Ciel. It has beautiful melodies which I think are eternal. I never get bored and feel spirited every time I listen to it. I can't describe it more. I can only say it's beautiful.

3 Heaven's Drive
4 Dive to Blue

The song that got me into J-pop in 1998. Maybe I'm biased because of this, but this song is just so perfectly crafted. Hyde's vocals soar, Ken's guitars go from jangly U2 to an amazing solo, and the overall vibe makes this their perfect pop single.

I think 1998 was this band's best year, and this was arguably the best single they put out that year.

My favorite L'Arc song. Amazing vocals, and the lyrics are just awesome. I never ever get tired of listening to this song.

5 White Feathers

Really great chorus in the background. I love this rock masterpiece!

No days without this amazing song!

6 Snow Drop
7 Finale

Amazing song, amazing vocals, amazing atmosphere. This was the first Japanese song I've ever heard. Seriously consider giving it a listen.

Hyde sings these breath-taking lyrics as if his life depended on it, and his voice is hauntingly beautiful in this piece. Laruku plays this emotional piece amazingly live too. Please check it out.

8 Blurry Eyes

This song introduced me to L'Arc~en~Ciel. After I heard some other songs by them, this one remains my number one choice for this band. Maybe it's because of the powerful bass, and I love songs with powerful bass.

The vocals from Hyde are the best on this track. I really love it. Such an old-school song with powerful and amazing bass, great vocals, and lyrics from the band. Thumbs up!

I totally agree with you. The bass line is just magic, the guitar line and the drums line are powerful, and the voice of Hyde is so moving.

9 Ready Steady Go

Dang, I love this song. Plus, Daybreak's Bell is good, but don't say it's better than this when they are both epic. The band is amazing and knows what they're doing.

I've always loved this song, besides the fact that it was in FMA. Besides, the song truly is meaningful. I mean, who wouldn't love this song? READY STEADY GO!

This song actually got me into J-rock/pop. I first heard it on FMA and I was like, "Wow, this is amazing. Who sings it?" Then it was love at first sight.

10 Hitomi No Jyuunin

It's very hard to pick just one of their songs. But Hitomi no Jyuunin is a masterpiece. It has a complex melody but is still easy to listen to. It features Hyde's vocals at their best.

The lyrics are not their usual dark romantic style. They have a more down-to-earth approach. But that just sums up the distinction of this song. What more could you ask for?

Well put and nicely done to represent your feeling that went unnoticed by someone (just keep the distance, and it's good for both you and them). Yes, it's cliched, but I love this song and will listen to it again whenever I feel like it.

The Contenders
11 Trick
12 The Fourth Avenue Cafe

I love it because it makes me remember my childhood when I was still watching Samurai X. Thanks, L'Arc~en~Ciel and Japan for making my childhood happy.

It's an amazing song with awesome lyrics, full of energy and feelings, and good changes in tunes!

The live performance of this song is so cute because Hyde always sighs at the end.

13 Lost Heaven

Why is this song not in first position? This is the best anime song from Fullmetal Alchemist I have ever heard. So, don't regret it if you haven't heard this song.

14 My Heart Draws a Dream

A song that always gave me the spirit to start the day. This song should be number one!

This song is just nice! L'Arc~en~Ciel is the first punk rock band that I loved the most! I always thought those J-rock songs were noisy and miserable. But no. L'Arc~en~Ciel brought me to this world! L'Arc~en~Ciel forever!

Perfect high notes and sounds just outright amazing.

15 Daybreak's Bell

This whole song is just so poignant. Even the first time hearing it makes you feel kind of nostalgic. Everything is so beautiful about this song.

What my ears catch first are the drum beat (Yuki's so good) combined with Tetsu's bass. Just love it.

I adore this song. I love how the peaceful melody reverberates through you, yet the meaning is deep. Really a wonderful song. Wonderful band. I hope they come to the UK on their next tour!

16 Good Luck My Way

I can't stop listening to this song. I think it's the best L'Arc~en~Ciel song to date.

Love it! I listen to it over and over again. This should be in the top ten, guys!

A great song, resembles the old L'Arc~en~Ciel songs and surely should be in the top ten of their songs.

17 Stay Away

One of their best. If it can keep you coming back again and again without fail, you know it's one of their best songs.

Should be in the top ten. Great bass tab! Great lyrics!

18 Jojoushi

I love this song! L'Arc~en~Ciel is the best band in the world!

Hyde's voice! It's heavenly and so powerful!

19 Niji

This is one of the most beautiful songs by them. Great melody, great messages, great PV. It makes me emotional, especially after learning what they had gone through before producing this song.

This song is never too old to listen to, and I will fall again for it each time I listen.

A very powerful song that needs a powerful voice, just like Hyde's. This song rocks!

20 Flower

My most favorite single from Laruku. Nothing has ever been more meaningful than this song, though they had their best time around the 90s, but this song is the best!

This is love at first sight. The melody is so chill, but it's a sad song.

Easily recognizable, fun, poppy song.

21 Drink It Down
22 Anata

Excellent performance. The feelings of the song are there in plain sight, and it touches your heart.

23 Link

I love L'arc, but I absolutely dislike it when people say, "I love (insert name of the song) because of Fullmetal Alchemist!" Like, seriously?! Yeah right, I love L'arc because of Hyde's shirt...! No! They're a great band! Not your typical anisong band! They were famous way before FMA!

With so many great songs from this band, it's hard to decide. But this should be at least in the top three. Especially after that FMA OST opening, this song is lit!

As everyone says, this should be in the top 10! It's a fun song with a fast beat and is overall great.

24 Forbidden Lover
25 Pieces

I didn't know why, but I felt very emotional when I heard this song for the second time. And when I listened to it with the translated lyrics, I couldn't stop crying. This song brought out so many emotions from me.

Awesome promotional video storyline. This is one of my favorites from the band. It sounds very emotional.
